Associated Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIK) has expressed dismay over the "mismanagement and confusion" created over lockdown.
In a statement, CCIK said the traders are in a fix as to whether they have to open the shops or not.
Secretary General CCIK Tariq Rashid Ghani said shops are open at many places and at other places police is not allowing the shopkeepers to open the shops.
“It is totally confusing whether shopkeepers have to remain closed. Administration is allowing opening of the shops but Police are harassing. There is no coordination between administration and the police,” he said.
Ghani urged the admin to take trade and police into confidence for proper unlock strategies.
“Government should allow traders and the business community to start doing business through proper unlocking of this lockdown and for that it should take the trader's body into confidence who can give proper suggestions how the trade can be made operational with proper SOPs,” said Ghani.
"Currently the situation is messy and there are no clear cut guidelines for the traders as a result of which they are facing police harassment."
